Squeeze Netinstall Partitioner Foobared


So I did a clean install of Debian Squeeze on my system last night from the net install CD. Prior to installing I had two partitions. One was a 30~gb and another was 600~gb. When I was installing I decided I wanted to merge the two together. The installation when off with out a hitch and it said it resized the partitions with out an issue.

However when I reboot the following is my partition setup:

See my issue? Gparted is reporting it as a single partition, but it is saying some 600gigs is used! I only have around 4~gb of files residing on said partition. And running df -h shows this! But it reads that my partition is only a total of 28gb... What on earth went wrong and how I can fix it with out reformatting? My internet is super slow so the net install ran over night and I was hoping to get my system setup today.
